First five.grok release

The developers of five.grok are pleased to announce a 1.0a1 release.  
This is a milestone in the convergence of Zope 2 towards Zope 3  
technology. The five.grok component makes the ease of Grok – with its  
convention over configuration approach – available to existing Zope 2  

The five.grok initiative was begun by Lennart Regebro and Godefroid  
Chapelle at the Paris Sprint at Ingeniweb. five.grok is already in use  
in Martin Aspeli's Dexterity and Infrae's content management system  

What is five.grok?

five.grok is a development layer for Zope 2, based on Grok framework  
concepts. The development techniques are similar to those used in  
Grok. The component is based on grokcore namespace packages that were  
factored out of Grok.

Implemented features

five.grok makes the following components available to Zope 2 developers:

     * Zope 3 Component (Adapter, Utility, Subscribers)
     * Permissions
     * Views
     * Page Templates (using the Zope 2 Page Templates)
     * Formlib forms
     * Skins

All these components are available with exactly the same syntax as in
